Looking Past The Dry Season

Rain! Grateful for every drop in this region of Tanzania, which is one with the lowest precipitation in the country. This year the rains have come considerably earlyer.

As I was taking these photos I realized how precisely rain and the budding of plants are timed. In all the complexity of biological processes there is a very high degree of precision. The “engineer” of it all has a brilliant mind indeed.

The initial strong rainfalls are an indicator for the smallholders in the area to begin preparing their fields. Although processes here are slow, by not acting timely an inconsiderate farmer can miss his harvest.
